DMDSOM is a ten-month leadership program. The biblical mandate to preach and disciple all nations has not been fully accomplished. We see that the focus of the NT church was not to attract people but to allow Christ to live through people. We must raise up next generation leaders in our churches who will permeate our society with their Christlike presence, thinking, and behavior. That is evangelism and discipleship in its purest sense. Our desire to is to equip and empower students spiritually to live life to the fullest so they can make that impact on the world around them. Our students will not only receive practical skills, but we want each of them to receive a spiritual impartation that will give them a sure foundation for future ministry in the church or the world. We will make every effort to make it possible for our students to find purpose and receive the direction that is necessary for seeing change in this generation. Our students will have the opportunity to minister to hundreds of young people both locally in area schools and communities, as well as abroad through our mission’s trips to other nations. Each week, our students flood the schools with the gospel, ministering the Word of God to hungry students all over the greater Atlanta area. If not in a classroom ministering, students are sent out to area communities where outreaches, evangelism, and mentoring take place.

Students also have hands-on ministry experience from some of the finest men and women of God available. Pastor Craig Mosgrove and other church staff regularly equip the students, who receive a great deal of impartation from these great men and women of God. Students also have the privilege of being ministered to by incredible guest speakers.

Every DMDSOM student is placed under one of our seasoned leaders for personal mentorship and discipleship. These leaders work one on one with them to make sure the purpose and plan of God is being fulfilled in their life. Each student will also be mentoring his or her own group of students. Students will learn the basics of discipleship not just through discussions, but also practically through school ministries, outreaches, and home small groups.

When does the School of Ministry begin? What does the cost cover?

The SOM begins in August 0f 2018. The cost covers all personal development material, administrative costs, books, workspace, and DMDSOM gear.

Where do the students live?

Students will be responsible for providing their own housing. We will provide a list of recommended places to stay and also aid in connecting interns with other interns to room together.

Is there an accredited degree attached to the internship?

No. Our program is not accredited nor will you receive any type of educational credential.

Is there a placement program (job or something with earning potential) once complete?

There is not a job placement program. We do keep constant contact with each intern and begin exit interviews with each intern at the end of their term with us to discuss their plans (college, careers, etc).

What is the daily expectations concerning the Word?

There are daily reading plans given each month to all students. Devotional time (Bible reading and prayer) is incorporated into the daily schedule of each intern at the beginning of each day.

How is the program structured?

Each student is assigned to a high school small group in which they will have hands on experience in evangelism and discipleship through mentoring their own set of young people each week. Many students are given assignments during the week to aid in church events that may be exclusively for that one week with other assignments to come as the months go by. Many also have permanent weekend assignments for each church service. Mission trips are also incorporated into the term here at DMDSOM. These trips are spread throughout the year and are up to the student and their family about which they choose to attend. Students are also given holiday breaks (Summer – about 4 weeks, Thanksgiving – about one week) during which they may return home and rest with their families.

What is the goal/outcome of DMD School of Ministry?

The goal is to help develop emerging leaders for the Great Commission through the local church. This development will be specified to personal development in the life of each student. Again, there is no specific job training or educational credentials being offered.
